Album: Lang Lang, Live In Vienna (Sony Classical)
Friday 20 August 2010
Lang Lang's debut release for Sony captures him in performance at Vienna's Musikverein Concert Hall, playing a varied programme which on one disc pairs Beethoven's dramatic Piano Sonata No 23 in F minor, the "Appassionata", with the more youthful and innocent Piano Sonata No 3 in C minor, while the second disc traverses diverse territory from Albéniz's impressionistic sketches of Spain in Book 1 of "Iberia", to the dark material of Prokofiev's innovative Piano Sonata No 7 in B flat major, before concluding with encores of a popular trio of Chopin pieces.
It's hard to imagine a programme to better display the pianist's prodigious range .
